Issue 6

Welcome to the sixth issue of Podium from the 92nd Street Y Unterberg Poetry Center.

We hope you enjoy the twelve amazing pieces selected from the writing program's fiction, poetry, nonfiction, playwriting, literary seminar and advanced level creative writing workshops taught by well-known authors and poets who come to 92Y to teach and mentor these writers.

In this issue, the featured photographer is Matthew Zdano, who hails from the South side of Chicago. "To me, a successful image is when you see it in your brain and you can use the camera to translate it into something tangible."

We hope you enjoy the issue and are inspired to come check out the classes and events the Unterberg Poetry Center has to offer! Sign-up for our eNews to learn about the latest on upcoming events at the Poetry Center.
